Re working DX in SS:
I have been doing SS for quite a few years and, to the best of my knowlege,
and according to the rules as published in QST, there is nothing against
working DX in Sweepstakes. You can even get two points per QSO IF you can
get the required exchange. Although a DX station is not a multiplier it is
a qso and is worth points. The big problem is getting the exchange info
from a station who is not familiar with it (ie: yr 1st licensed, ck,
section- which would be DX- etc).
We will not turn anyone down who wants to work us during SS, the more the
merrier. However, please familiarize yourself with the exchange
information, just as we must do in WAE, so that we can get the points for
